We want this to be a public and ongoing discussion forum on all coastal NC fishing piers in the state which are listed by city and county below. Readers can interact with this page by using the no registration form at the bottom of this article.

Other information can center on types of poles and gear to use, strategies, and best times of the day to catch specific species of fish.

People visit coastal NC from all over the world specifically because of our state’s fishing resources from the piers listed above, our remote and isolated beaches, and national recognized tournaments such as the Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament in Morehead City.
Many of our coastal piers are under threat from increased strength and frequency of hurricanes and tropical storms, and condo development. Just in the past 20 years we’ve lost Sportsmen and Triple S to housing development, and after Hurricane Florence and Dorian many NC piers were very badly damaged resulting in financial hardships for their owners.
Furthermore, our proximity to the gulf stream and it’s relation to saltwater sportfishing is internationally known. Review our article on Outer Banks And gulf stream fishing and tell our readers what information you have on this resource.
In the past, you did not need a license to fish on piers extending in to the ocean as state legislators recognized that it helped tourism. Is this still the case?
